the WALKING WILLOWS, Stephen Cohen on acoustic guitar, voice and cigar box guitar, and Rich Hinrichsen on double bass, piano and voice, with a revolving roster of guest artists on french horn, voice, electric bass, cello and other instruments, took to the road on occasion via plane, train or car to share their "creative acoustic" music and make friends along the way. They recorded and released one album, "by hand". These are their stories.

Stephen's new guitar string bracelet
Custom bracelet for Stephen Cohen (sterling, bronze, ebony, piano key ivory, guitar strings
by Kristin Shiga
I am so pleased to have my new guitar string bracelet! It was custom made by Portland artist and "metal babe" Kristin Shiga. I've had this idea for a guitar string bracelet for awhile, and Kristin was able to take that idea and my original drawings and plans, and create something truly elegant and beautiful. I will be so happy to wear it at performances and other special occasions. I am also planning to use the above photo of the bracelet laying on Kristin's sketches for the cover for the new WALKING WILLOWS album. A working title for that album might be: "by hand"
